Description
BACKGROUND

1. Technical Field

The disclosure generally relates to clamping devices and, particularly, to a clamping device for clamping hard disk drives.

2. Description of Related Art

Hard disk drives (HDDs) are generally installed in a computer case. In use, various or several hard disk drives are arranged adjacent to one another and cooperate to provide high storage. Heat dissipating efficiency of the HDDs is affected by spacing between each two neighboring HDDs. When the spacing of each two neighboring HDDs is fairly narrow, heat dissipating efficiency of the HDDs is relatively high. Generally, if one HDD is overlapped with another in assembly, heat may accumulate in the limited space and thus it can be difficult to dissipate. As such, the HDDs may break down due to thermal-overload.

Therefore, what is needed, is a clamping device, which can protect the HDD from thermal-overload, thus overcoming the above shortcomings.

Referring further to FIG. 3 and FIG. 4, the spacing member 50 includes a first elastic element 51, a second elastic element 52, and an engaging base 53. The first and the second elastic element 52 are made of flexible material, such as plastic. As shown in FIG. 3, the first elastic element 51 includes a first engaging end 511 and a second engaging end 512. The second elastic element 52 includes a third engaging end 523 and a fourth engaging end 524. A cross section of each of the first and the second elastic elements 51 and 52 is substantially circular.

The engaging base 53 includes a main body 530 and a connection block 532. The main body 530 includes a first surface 530A, a second surface 53013, a first peripheral surface 530C, a first groove 530D, and two first fixing holes 530E. The first and the second surfaces 530A and 530B are located at opposite sides of the main body 530. The first peripheral surface 530C is located between and adjoins the first and the second surfaces 530A and 530B. The first groove 530D is defined in the first surface 530A. In this embodiment, the first groove 530D is step-shaped. A portion of the first groove 530D nearer to the first peripheral surface 530C is wider than an opposite portion of the first groove 530D further from the first peripheral surface 530C. In addition, the portion of the first groove 530D further from the first peripheral surface 530C is exposed at the second surface 530B. The first fixing holes 530E are defined in the first peripheral surface 530C. Each of the first fixing holes 530E communicates with the first groove 530D. The connection block 532 includes a third surface 532A, a fourth surface 532B, a second peripheral surface 532C, a second groove 532D, and two second fixing holes 532E. The third and the fourth surfaces 532A and 532B are located at opposite sides of the connection block 532. The second peripheral surface 532C is located between and adjoins the third and the fourth surfaces 532A and 532B. The second groove 532D is defined in the third surface 532A. The second fixing holes 532E are defined in the second peripheral surface 532C. Each of the second fixing holes 532E communicates with the second groove 532D.

In this embodiment, the main body 530 has two rails 533, and a number of slots 533A defined in a surface of each rail 533. The slots 533A are arranged in sequence along a lengthwise direction of the rail 533. In addition, the connection block 532 includes two arms 534 in the side facing away from the second peripheral surface 532C. Each of the arms 534 has a protrusion 534A distant from the second peripheral surface 532C.

The connection block 532 is detachably attached to the main body 530. In this embodiment, the two arms 534 can be operated to slides along the respective rails 533, and the two protrusions 534A can be selectively and engagingly received in two respective slots 533A. As shown in FIG. 5, the spacing member 50 is operated in a first working state. The two protrusions 534A are engagingly received in two respective slots 533A nearest to the first peripheral surface 530C, such that the main body 530 and the connection block 532 cooperatively form a substantially cuboid-shaped engaging base 53.

The first elastic element 51 and the second elastic element 52 intersect with each other, and are attached to the engaging base 53. In this embodiment, the first elastic element 51 extends through one of the two first fixing holes 530E, the first groove 530D, the second groove 532D, and one of the two second fixing holes 532E in sequence. The second elastic element 52 extends through the other first fixing hole 530E, the first groove 530D, the second groove 532D, and the other second fixing hole 532E in sequence. The first groove 530D and the second groove 532D cooperatively receive an intersection of the first and the second elastic elements 51 and 52. To avoid interference occurring between the first and the second elastic elements 51 and 52, the second elastic element 52 includes a first bending portion 52A. The first bending portion 52A is a central and bent portion of the second elastic element 52, and configured for allowing the first elastic element 51 to extend below the first bending portion 52A (see FIG. 4). In this embodiment, the first bending portion 52A is exposed at the first groove 530D and protrudes from the second surface 530B. In addition, an angle α is defined between the intersection of the first and the second elastic elements 51 and 52, in a first working state as shown in FIG. 5. Furthermore, the second elastic element 52 includes two second bending portions 52B (see FIG. 3) at opposite ends thereof distant from the first bending portion 52A. In particular, one of the two second bending portions 52B is located between the third engaging end 523 and the first bending portion 52A, and the other second bending portion 52B is located between the fourth engaging end 524 and the first bending portion 52A. Moreover, the first elastic element 51 includes two third bending portions 51A at opposite side of the intersection. One of the two third bending portions 51A is located between the first engaging end 511 and the intersection, and the other third bending portion 51A is located between the second engaging end 512 and the intersection. Each of the two second bending portions 52B and the two third bending portions 51A protrudes from the external surface 352.

In this embodiment, the first and the second elastic elements 51 and 52 are shaped to conform to that of the corresponding first and the second fixing holes 530E and 532E. When the first and the second elastic elements 51 and 52 are attached to the engaging base 53, each of the first and the second elastic elements 51 and 52 abuts against inner surfaces of the first and the second fixing holes 530E and 532E.

The spacing member 50 is arranged on the external surface 352 of the spacing arm 35. In this embodiment, when the main body 530 and the connection block 532 cooperatively form the engaging base 53, the engaging base 53 can be fittingly received in the first recess 35A. The first surface 530A of the main body 530 and the third surface 532A of the connection block 532 are in contact with the bottom surface 356 in the first recess 35A. The first peripheral surface 530C of the main body 530 contacts the first lateral surface 357 in the first recess 35A. The second peripheral surface 532C of the connection block 532 contacts the second lateral surface 358 in the first recess 35A.

The first elastic element 51 extends through and received in one-of the two second recesses 35B, the first recess 35A, and one of the two third recesses 35C in sequence. The first engaging end 511 protrudes out from the first side surface 353, and the second engaging end 512 protrudes out from the second side surface 354. The second elastic element 52 extends through and is received in the other second recess 35B, the first recess 35A, and the other third recess 35C in sequence. The third engaging end 523 protrudes out from the first side surface 353, and the fourth engaging end 524 protrudes out from the second side surface 354. In this embodiment, each of the first, the second, the third, and the fourth engaging ends 511, 512, 523, and 524 are bent portions. The first and the third engaging ends 511 and 523 abut against bottoms of the corresponding fourth recesses 35D, and the third and the fourth engaging ends 512 and 524 abut against bottoms of the corresponding fifth recesses 35E. In alternative embodiment, the spacing arm 35 includes the first side surface 353 and the second side surface 354 but not necessary to have the fourth recesses 35D defined on the first side surface 353 and the fifth recesses 35E defined on the second side surface 354. In assembly, the first and the third engaging ends 511 and 523 can abut against the first side surface 353, and the second and the fourth engaging ends 512 and 524 can abut against the second side surface 354.

In use, a number of supporting frames 30 can be provided to arrange a number of HDDs 10 thereon respectively. As the first engaging end 511 and the third engaging end 523 protrude from the first side surface 353, the second engaging end 512 and the fourth engaging ends 524 protrude from the second side surface 354, the spacing member 50 can be used to space two neighboring HDDs 10. When the two neighboring HDDs 10 are spaced, a space is formed to facilitate the flowing of atmosphere therein, such that the heat from the HDDs 10 can be dissipated efficiently.

In this embodiment, the two arms 534 can be operated to slide along the respective rails 533, and the two protrusions 534A can be engagingly received in two selected respective slots 533A, such that the main body 530 and the engaging connection block 532 cooperatively form an engaging base 53 in variable size. As such, the spacing member 50 can be used to space HDDs with variable thickness. As shown in FIG. 6, the spacing member 50 operates in a second working state, the two protrusions 534A are engagingly received in two slots 533A furthest from the first peripheral surface 530C. An angle β (see FIG. 6) between the intersecting first elastic element 51 and second elastic elements 52 in the second working state is less than the angle α between the intersecting first elastic element 51 and second elastic elements 52 in the first working state (see FIG. 5). The spacing member 50 of the second working state can be used to space two neighboring HDDs with a thickness less than that of the HDDs 10 shown in FIG. 1.

It is understood that the above-described embodiment is intended to illustrate rather than limit the disclosure. Variations may be made to the embodiment without departing from the spirit of the disclosure. Accordingly, it is appropriate that the appended claims be construed broadly and in a manner consistent with the scope of the disclosure.
